Membership is open to anyone interested in geology and particular encouragement is given to those with little previous knowledge of the subject.  We welcome anyone interested to come along to meetings or excursions before joining.  Please get in touch with the Membership Secretary if you would like to “try us out”.

Members benefit from:

  • A say in how the society is run and managed
  • A regular newsletter
  • The publication ‘The Cumberland Geologist’
  • A copy of the bi-annual proceedings
  • Included subscription to geological publications and magazines
  • Borrowing books from the society library collection (this is not available until the Library is re-housed)
  • Applying for grants towards a variety of subjects
  • Recognition for achievements and contributions
  • Attending formal and informal dinners and events

If you would like to join, please open and print the application form, and return it to the Membership Secretary, along with a cheque/PO (payable to “The Cumberland Geological Society”).
